A Remembrance Day parade will not be going ahead in Invergordon this year in a bid to minimise the Covid-19 risk – and the public are being urged not to gather at the traditional time.

The Royal British Legion Scotland's Invergordon branch has "strongly urged" the public to respect the decision, in a bid to save lives.

A spokesman said: "[The branch] regret that this year it is unable to conduct the annual Remembrance Day parade and service on Sunday, November 9 at 11am, as, owing to government coronavirus guidelines this event is forthwith cancelled.

"All concerned are strongly urged to refrain from assembling at the memorial on or about the eleventh hour, as, at this time, a private Legion silent tribute will be held.

"Anyone wishing to lay a wreath are advised to do so from 11.15am onwards, at staggered intervals, at their convenience, adhering at all times to government guidelines.

"Any inconvenience caused is very much regretted and your co-operation would be much appreciated.

"This is subject to alterations as per instructed by government policy."
